I stumbled upon this property while searching for something "on the beach" while in Tampa on business. It's a bit of a "hike" from the airport and hidden away enough that it's not overrun with tourists. The rooms were beautiful - especially the water side views as long as you're on the third floor or above.Very cozy! The beach area is also very nice, a very short walk from the hotel. They also have an excellent workout room! The down sides are only 2 restaurants and they closed at 9:00 and 1... Read more

Driving down the road to get to Little Harbor, you would never expect the resort to be as nice as it is. There are apartments/condos, suites, hotel rooms, a restaurant, a bar, a public and a private beach on the grounds, but it is very quiet and relaxing, you almost feel like you are the only people there sometimes.

The three bedroom suite resembling a beach house in my opinion, sat right off the dock, overlooking Tampa Bay. The colors inside are a light blue pastel and give a therapeutic feel. Windows are big and plentiful for amazing views of the marina and bay. The resort is a bit rural, still with nearby amenities that should keep you from having to venture too far for necessities. Tampa is conveniently not too far away as well if you want to get a little night life in the downtown area. My only gripe a... Read more

I love this place. It is quiet, serene and beautiful. Whenever I'm in the area this is where I stay. it is off the beaten path but it is well worth it if you are looking to relax. I loved the porch at the back of the unit we rented, it faced the water.

The staff was friendly & courteous. It was convenient to have somewhere to go on site to eat after long days. The sunset was beautiful as well as I had a room facing sunrise. There were quite a few locals at the Tiki and the Ahi Tuna was great. I had my own laptop, but needed to use their business center, a plus!

The hotel staff was very accommodating. My daughter had her wedding at Sunset Grill at Little Harbor. A large majority of the guests stayed at the resort. Everyone seemed happy with their stay. The view out of our room was awesome since we faced the marina. The bed was comfortable and the rooms spacious, even the couch was comfortable. There is a saltwater pool which was awesome as well as a hot tub. Unfortunately, I had to do laundry and was pleasantly surprised at the cost. The staff e... Read more

This property has a lovely setting on the harbor. The pool and grounds are lovely. The problem I had was in the cleanliness of the room. Carpets ( yesâ?¦ Florida) were very badly stained, all the furniture was stained and actually ripped in places. Air conditioning vents were filthy with dust and grease. Crumbs left in appliances. I could continue, but you get the point. It needs a detail cleaning.

We had an excellent visit to the resort. We enjoyed a week in a 2 bedroom/2 bath suite. Beds were a little stiff but I had more than 1 great nap on the couch. The bathrooms were huge! Both had large showers and 1 had a deep soaking bath tub. Full kitchen with a dishwasher and washer/dryer. We only used the pool behind building B. They had plenty of chairs, umbrellas and towels. We didn't visit the beach. It's not a "white sandy beach" as advertised. We drove by and decided we would rather stay... Read more

I was nervous after reading some of the reviews, but we were more than impressed with place. It was very spacious and accommodated all our needs.

DO NOT BOOK WITH HOTEL! The suites are wonderful. But the hotel rooms are VERY outdated and not the cleanest! The carpet in the hotel lobby is terrible and disgusting. I only gave it an average rating, because the resort is nice. People that work there are always great, the state of the hotel is not their fault. My room had a very dirty, rusty shower rod. The air conditioner vents were very dirty, the door was sticking and hard to close. The closet door was the same. I have booked rooms there on... Read more

This was a very quiet place tucked away on Tampa Bay. My friend and his mother came with us. The room was at the top floor. We were not given water front view, still, the room was clean and tidy. Equipped with kitchenette and also big bathroom. The door was heavy to open which was perfect for my son not able to open the door.

Horrible experience with racial overtones by security guards. I didn't think I would see this in 2016 maybe 20 years ago. Central Florida with the increase in diversity has made little difference here in Ruskin sad to say. Without trying this case via review. As a minority I would not recommend this resort to other minorities. Spend your money at another resort.

Nice resort in the middle of nowhere. There are a variety of activities on the resort. It is close to a grocery and drug store. The beach is small but decent. Beware of the dolphins because they are definitely in the bay but harmless. The rooms were spacious but the floors are filthy. Need better house keeping.

The resort was clean and quiet but lacking in quality amenities. There are 2 mediocre restaurants on site but none serves breakfast. There is adequate entertainment in the Sunset Lounge. There is a small, nice private beach but the bay water is more like a weed filled swamp than a tropical water paradise.

Very peaceful and quite. 3 pools, 1/2 mile private beach. 2 restaurants on site and you can drink while laying next to pool. Sunset Grill is nice to eat outside to watch the sunset. Just amazing place. Yes I would go back.

My family and I stayed here for two nights. It was a last minute booking but we couldn't have been happier. The staff was amazing. The views and atmosphere was the best. They have a restaurant and live bands playing. The beach area is clean and beautiful. They also have paddle boards, jet skis or kayaking you can use for an extra price, but well worth it. I would highly recommend this place. Gorgeous views and all around great for kids and families or just a romantic get away.

The Harbor Inn Suites are very nice. The Harbor Inn is dumpy. Check in was horrible. Attendant didn't know what he was doing. Couldn't deliver the class of room we booked.

This could be an amazing paradise in the middle of Florida. Unfortunately, it is not. The check in was horrible - with the attendant arguing about not one, but 3 out of 5 reservations for our group. Caution to all - it doesn't matter what you think you have booked, the club will make changes and then tell you it is an "upgrade". We reserved a suite but were upgraded to a townhome.

What they did was illegal to me, unfortunately had to stay there. The walls were so thin you could hear every door shut (and they all slam) and the people talking.
